Get a Contact Family

New in Sweden and want to know more about the typical Swedish life outside campus? A Contact Family can provide you with an experience you couldn't get else were.

Who should apply?

If you are interested in meeting a Swedish family once a month or more, this is the program for you. If you think that this sounds “too much” or are not sure of whether you will have the time or not, we kindly ask you to not apply as this will save us time and trouble since we like to focus on the students who are genuinely interested in getting to know Jönköping and the Swedish culture outside campus. It is a give-and-give program, and it is expected from you to also share your culture with the family. 

Since this program is very popular among the students, the Student Union can't guarrantee that all students applying will get a family.

The Contact Family

The Student Union does not have any demands that the “family” should consist of eg. a mother, a father and three children. The family can for example be a bunch of friends, a couple with no children or single people who wants to show and share the Swedish culture and get to know another culture.

The program is open for everyone! Some “families” wishes to get more than one student. 


  1. Fill in the form below and apply to get a Contact Family. You will get a confirmation email.
  2. After the semester has started, you will receive an email with a notification if we have found you a family or not. If you have, the family have received your email address and will contact you shortly. 
  3. You will get an invitation for a Contact Family Mingle where all families and their students are welcome to meet for the first time. After this, you are free to meet with your family as often as you can and want to throughout the semester. 
  4. At the end of the semester, the Student Union will invite you to a last Farewell Meeting with your Contact Family.
